The atmosphere mirrors El Born SUBTLE lighting in the small streets and THEATRICAL illumination in the plazas

UNIQUE HOME/ The new design is inspired by the neighborhood’s history. Outside, the labyrinth–like streets from the Born district experience contrast between the buildings’ shadows and Barcelona’s bright sun light. Inside the flat the same contrast has been applied to materials, lights and colors.

The new design is inspired by the neighbourhood’s HISTORY
“The team at Bloomint Design did a great job of planning and executing a renovation that combines innovative design with respect for the history and essential character of an old city apartment. They were ‘hands-on’ enough to make things easy for us, being relatively unfamiliar with the city and the design process itself, but respectful enough of our creative input that we feel the space is truly our own.”
Each atmosphere transforms based on its purpose. The perfect match between old and new, darkness and light, colors and white. Functional furniture and intelligent built-in storage was custom made to contrast with the uncovered old bricks, stonewalls and ancient wooden doors.
